A collection of more than 70 of Dave Lowry's Karate Way columns published in BLACK BELT from 1995 to 2005. Essays detail his experience and opinions regarding Asian culture and traditional martial arts. Heavy on Japanese terminology, very different from Bill Wallace's laid-back everyman approach. Much more academic, but still witty. Topics include: discussion of ancient and modern masters, tenets of the budo, hazards and benefits of martial arts training, sensei traditions, the long-term learning process of "true" martial artists, karate defense techniques, dojo ethics, mental-training techniques for martial artists, history of traditional Asian martial arts, weapons techniques and history, kata applications and much more...Thibault, Jon is the author of 'Black Belt Presents The Best of Dave Lowry Karate Way columns, 1995 to 2005', published 2005 under ISBN 9780897501484 and ISBN 0897501489.
